My mother only has nine dogs. Most people would never say someone only has nine dogs, but compared to thirty-two cats, nine is a fairly small and reasonable number. Sadly, while I thought I had photographed all of my mom's animals (except for one feral cat, and one cat that was so terrified of me that he split whenever he saw me), I somehow only photographed eight of my mom's nine dogs. Oddly enough, the one I didn't photograph (Marlee) is underfoot most of the time, so god knows how I neglected to take any pictures of her. Ahh well. Anyway, here are the other eight:
This is Koala, my idiot child.
Blix is probably my mom's oldest dog. He showed up back in 2003... and the vet thought he was probably about seven years old at the time.
This is Brin, a six year old super-snuggly pit bull who thinks he's a lap dog.
This is Bitsy, a feist and/or Jack Russell
Kali showed up on my front porch a few days before I moved to Korea last year. She was skin and bones, terrified of everyone, and covered in mange. My mom took her in... and look at her now!
This is Lady. She's a really old girl who turned up out at my mom's land just a few weeks ago - all skin and bones and riddled with heartworms. This is what she looked like when my mom first found her. She has since gained eight pounds, been spayed, and is being treated for heartworms.
Little Guy is the only one of the nine dogs likely to bite anyone.
This is Wolfie. He is nearly impossible to photograph, as he will not hold still. He is constantly in motion. Game of Thrones fans, don't you think he looks like a direwolf? Anyway, probably the best way to see what Wolfie is really like is to watch this video I shot of him playing with Bitsy:
